A word from your hosts
You will receive a warm welcome from Sonia and Alex at the Chalet Club Alpine Francais des Contamines. The summer season is between the 15th June and the 15th September and winter from 15th December until the 30th April. The chalet is idylically situated on the Tour du Mont Blanc and the GR5, a great rest stop before the tough ascent of the Col du Bonhomme. It is also a great base camp for other treks including the Domes du Miage and the Mont Blanc.
In winter we are close to Les Contamines ski area, perfect for all levels of skiers and ideal for those that love ski touring and snow shoeing.
Simply loads of activities awaiting you!
We would like to tell a big thanks to teresa for the translation...
About your stay
*Your hosts Alex and Sonia live in the chalet all year round so part of the chalet comprises their private living accommodation. The rest of the chalet is communal, consisting of a dining room, four dormitories, two shower rooms and 3 toilets. There is not a communal kitchen, which is why the half board option is strongly recommended, as you will not be able to prepare your own food.
*Most of your payment goes to the club Alpin Francais, we live exclusively on the restaurant service we provide (All CAF refuges work in the same way).
*The Chalet des Contamines is a great place to stay, the hosts provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere, but they count on you too to contribute to this atmosphere with your smiles, respect and good spirits.
